FYI: Lenso Project D Spec F DO NOT fit MY13 370Z

Not only devastated but gobsmacked as well! 

Just bought my first Z. Following the information from The370Z.com, I went to try stunningly beautiful (disclaimer: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder) Lenso Project D Spec F in Hyper Dark.

While 20x10 with +15 at the back looked pretty flush (without a tyre), front 20x10 +35 would not get anywhere near due to the caliper. 

Moral of the story: don't believe everyting you read on the net. Try before you buy. Get seller's guarantee that it'll fit the specific model.

Thank you George from Rollenso, for really trying to assisst me with sizes...

I didn't see anything on there about 10 +35, did you send them a message privately or something?

All I saw was:
"20x10 +15 (square setup)
20x10 +15 Front / 20x12 +0 Rear"

For the Z's you have to be very careful if it's an untested combination due to the brakes.

No, i failed to mention that my comment was a 'long story short'. Square setup was impossible because 20x10 +15 at the front sticks out almost an inch. Rollenso guy said that +35 should be OK but that wouldn't fit because of the caliper. 

The second solution, with 20x12 +0 at the rear only fits flared guards.

Thanks for the advice, I'm looking at Vertini RF 1.1 as the come with custom offset but I'm still worried about the x-factor. Does anyone here have these fitted, I wonder?

Try Facebook, you'll likely get more replies, but I doubt there would be anybody. Are there brands with similar designs that are known to fit?

I think I vaguely may have seen some Enkei and Vossen wheels with a similar design but not 100% sure.

Also I guess be wary about the US etc if they don't have pictures of fitment, as they're more likely to do things like excessive camber and widebody kits to "make stuff fit".

Thanks, I have decided not to buy any wheels without trying them on. So far, the three of the biggest shops on Princess Highway between Tempe and Rockdale have been as useless l as the proverbial mammaries on a bull, and just as arrogant. 

I'll keep you posted as soon as I buy something.

Yeah they don't strike me as the type to go to for correct fitting wheels. Give Autocraze a try, not sure what they have in terms of stock. I got my Works from JDM Concept but he wouldn't have anything for test fitment.

If you're interested in Work Kiwamis though, I'll have mine up for sale shortly

    • 370z Wheel choice – Australian market research - FYI
      By paracin · Posted
      After 2 months of market and forums research, I bought my new wheels – 19” Kiwamis. The following factors were considered: wheel size and spacers, quality, price and the supplier’s customer service. To determine the right size, I thoroughly studied 17 pages of “370z wheel fitment guide” on The370z forum and settled for 9.5 +25 and 10.5 +12, which should provide a flush fit without spacers or camber adjustment while accommodating larger tyres (if so inclined after suspension upgrade). Quality-wise, after considering some questionable 20” Taiwanese options like XXR ($1200+), Koya ($2400+), Vertini ($2800+ with 35% off), Rohana and Ferrada (both over $3K), I settled for a proper JDM option – Work Emotion Kiwami AHG (matte bronze), deep concave front and ultra deep concave rear. JDM Concept’s price is not only cheaper than the above, but also cheaper than Work USA. Regarding customer service, my first choice of wheels were Gram Lights or Weds but I didn’t get a quote from Aaron in nearly 4 weeks (he did apologise); Koya (Koya wheels), Venero (representing Ferrada wheels) and B.Boss (for Vossen VFS-1) NEVER even acknowledged receipt of my web inquiry; the main players on Princess highway between Tempe and Arncliffe, where I inquired in person, were totally disinterested, one even outright rude. (Is it my grey hair, I wonder, that causes people not to take me seriously in a Zed?) The shining stars of customer service are: Leonardy from JDM Concept, representing Work wheels, who replied to all my emails within an hour, often quicker. He specialises in Work wheels and is extremely helpful and accommodating (eg I picked up my wheels within 3 hours from committing to the purchase). George from Rollenso employed significant efforts to assist me with finding the right Lenso wheels. George is experienced, knowledgeable and helpful. I also ordered the tyres from George cheaper than Tempe, and that’s saying something.
    • Offset for Wheels to clear Brembos
      By Punked · Posted
      I think you are both a little confused. Lower offsets wheels (wheels closer to outside or poke from guard) will generally give you more brake clearance. However, some high offset wheels (wheels more sunken from outside of guard) will clear too. Hugely depends on the wheel/spoke shape and design. The factory wheels are 18x8+30 (or close?) and clear Brembo brakes but many aftermarket wheels in those specs will not clear. I run 19x10+15 and 19x11+15 on my 350Z and they clear by a mile. The same wheel as mine in a 18x8+20 probably wouldn't clear... You really need to try some wheels on your car....you will find many of the Japanese wheels are made to clear larger brakes (not always though)... https://www.1010tires.com/Tools/Wheel-Offset-Calculator# this is the best for fitment- won't help with your clearance issue though. Cheeeeeers

      If I remember correctly there was a recall here in Aus as well but only for certain series of that part number. I would demand to talk to the dealer principal rather than some service monkey that knows nothing but how to extract cash from loyal customers and demand the part be replaced (possibly costing labour which is fair) for a known faulty part that was subject to a nationwide recall. Search this forum for more info on the recall. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

      Ummmm !! Experienced the 'No start' and the orange key light.  2012 model 370Z. Tried the hammer trick, tried it again and again and again and eventually it released. Leave the accessory light on and removed the fuse. Car starts OK now. Quote from Nissan for a new ESCL(electronic Steering Control Lock) is $1,580.13 plus GST plus labour.

      Contact your local clutch specialist If you need to replace the flywheel that will really hurt - aftermarket flywheels are cheaper but also make unpleasant noise
